    Hardly anyone active on this forum will recommend the Makerbot due to the fact they closed their software and hardware. If you want to be able to troubleshoot your printer if necessary you will certainly welcome an open source printer as the other two.

    As mentioned in the posts above, asking for comparisons between printers on the forums of one of the printers in question, is bound to introduce some bias...

    Additionaly, the question of "best printer" is a somewhat ambiguous one...

    No doubt that the UM2 (or even UM1) are amongst the top FDM printers (as reviews and comparisons in eg. make magazine will also tell you).

    However, depending on the purpose of the printer and prints, there are now other technologies to consider. High end resin printers like the Form1 or the recently kickstarter launched M one, will achieve superior resolution/surface finish results.

    This however comes at the cost of eg. semi hazardous and rather expensive resins...

    Again... its all about the intent, purpose and size of your wallet...

    :lol: So I'm totally unbiased, absolutely impartial, completely open to everything else, and extremely flexible in the machine choice.

    :cool: Therefore, I would conclude by saying:

    Good 3D printer, there are probably somewhere. Perhaps there is somewhere a few very good 3D printer. And to my great regret, there are out there for sure, a lot of bad 3D printer.

    But my Ultimaker 2 is the best among all the other ... :D

    At this moment I'm not going to rethink my opinion. Let's see if there is a moment of doubt tomorrow. :rolleyes: :wacko: :ph34r:

    The UM Original kit is much cheaper than the UM2 and prints about the same as long as you don't print ABS (you need heated bed for ABS).

    Makerbot deletes forum posts that criticize the company. UM does not.

    Makerbot patents designs created on their forum. UM is open source.

    Makerbot printers are black. UM printers are white.

    Some learn from their previous errors, only that it is a lot of potential for further Errors.

    Maybe Ultimaker is in a sense just a little smarter than MakerBot.

    Because the big "G" almost always returns matching results:

    dissatisfied with ultimaker

    dissatisfied with makerbot

    Although the comparison of course is not heard because MakerBot sells probably much longer, and are more model variants available.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
